Immunology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Leeds

We have 21 Immunology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Leeds

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

Investigation of host-virus interactions

The School of Molecular and Cellular Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25 in the area of molecular virology. Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans.

NIHR Leeds BRC: Utilising genetic and genomic predictors of vasculitis and disease/treatment complications for application in routine clinical practice

There is substantial interest in using genetic biomarkers to predict those most at risk of disease and treatment complications; this is one of the focuses of Our Future Health, a national study aiming to recruit 5M participants ( https://ourfuturehealth.org.uk/ ). Read more

NIHR Leeds BRC: The role of target organs in initiation of autoimmunity in systemic lupus erythematosus

Autoimmune diseases such as SLE have traditionally been understood to result from aberrant haematopoietic adaptive immune system that targets normal tissues such as the skin and joints. Read more

NIHR Leeds BRC: An interferon diagnostic to inform early detection and prevention strategies in Ana positive CTDs

Type I interferons (IFN) play a role in a wide range of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs), and strong evidence suggests that measurement of IFN activity could have clinical value, although testing has not progressed into clinical settings. Read more

Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas. Read more

Development of Naked Mole Rat Colonic Crypt Models to Use in the Search for Bowel Disease Preventatives

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Diseases affecting the bowel such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are major global healthcare challenges in the 21st century. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more
